I have no clue why I keep doing this to myself. As much as I try to remain on the positive side of the spectrum - in ALL aspects - it is nearly impossible when I happen to run into people who expels so much negativity. It sticks to me like gum, and it is almost completely impossible to scrape off.
As much as I advocate free speech and thought, it isn't exactly fun to read or talk to people who does nothing but constantly bring the mood down. There's nothing wrong with having emotions, but why do you feel the need to rain on my - and many others - parade?
Has any of you encountered this? If so, do you have any strategies on how not to let the negativity get to you? If you do, I would really like it if you could share those tips with me.
